Hello! My name is Suzanne Czosek and I teach at Stamp Scrap N More in Mundelein, IL. I will be contributing to the Outside the Box blog and teaching Memory Box Classes. I am very excited about joining this wonderful group of designers and instructors. I love using new techniques, inks, colors, stamps and more stamps. I am looking forward to sharing with you some of the wonderful Memory Box products.
This card uses the beautiful paper from the Gossamer 6 x 6 collection and it is so lovely that I used the paper for my main image on my Soiree card..
I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 4 and die cut from brown card stock and the gorgeous gossamer paper. I then turned the die over and traced on the gossamer and hand-cut the shape to allow for a frame in brown.
I then used the Periwinkle B1181 Butterfly on another sheet from the Gossamer collection and stamped it four times using my Versafine - Vintage Sepia ink. I shaded the butterflies with my Prismacolor pencils using pink and brown.
I added some lovely Memory Box pearls as the body and a little Fruit Punch Stickles around the edges for some glimmer.
The border along the bottom is the same paper from the butterflies and the edge is created using a Martha Stewart Edger.
